The theme of this year's Bushnell line seems to be 'less is more'. By reducing their line to only three models they have slimmed down what has, in past years, been a crowded offering.
But with the advent of their brand new Slope Switch technology, all three of these units are 100% Tournament Legal which should lead to a broadening of their potential market. The middle of the Bushnell line, the upgraded Tour V4 Shift, is where we aim our sights today.
Introducing the Bushnell Tour V4 Shift
Replacing last year’s Tour V4 Slope unit, the main upgrade on the Tour V4 Shift (and it’s a huge one) is the ability to turn the slope functionality off and make the rangefinder tournament legal.
This is accomplished with the same slope toggle technology featured on the Pro X2 - simply flip the logo to either slope or standard mode depending on the situation.
We absolutely loved the Tour V4 last year (especially after the battery issue got resolved) and now that you have the flexibility to switch between tournament and slope mode without having to mess with a faceplate takes this device to the next level.
Bushnell Tour V4 Switch Features
The Tour V4 Shift keeps all the features that made the 2016 model such a success - here's a full list:
- Slope-Switch Technology
- 5X Magnification
- PinSeeker with JOLT Technology
- Accuracy to 1 yard
- For objects: 5-1,000 yards
- For flag: 400+ yards.
- Fast Focus System
- Stable-Grip Technology
What Is Slope Technology?
While all rangefinders will help you measure the distance to the pin, Bushnell Slope technology takes it one step further by giving you elevation adjusted distances to the hole. Instead of just a straight line distance to a target it instantly calculates what the uphill or downhill position means in terms of yards/meters.
For example, when you measure your shot with a standard rangefinder, it will just give you a reading of the distance to the hole. On the other hand, the slope takes the distance that adds or subtracts from the reading based on the elevation change to that hole.
The V4 slope edition takes the guessing out of your golf game! You won’t have to try to eyeball or estimate the yardage differences caused by uphill or downhill shots.
Another benefit of the slope edition is that it can be used to map out courses. Knowing the elevation and slopes of a course will benefit you and help you accurately learn the course before ever teeing off.
